Walking Back To Nutley, N.J. - Coast-To-Coast For a Cure

NHS Grads Walking From San Diego To Nutley
To Raise Fund for Breast Cancer Research, and other diseases

Some of you may or may not have heard that Anthony Greco and Rob Bonora (NHS Class of 2006/MSU Class of 2010) will be walking from San Diego back to Nutley in an effort to raise funds for breast cancer and childhood disease.  They are also very interested in promoting wellness and our town has just been named a "NJ Healthy Town". 

Rob and Anthony will begin their journey on June 1 and are expected to arrive back in Nutley in late September.  They have been visiting schools and this effort has and will be promoted on a number of local and tri state news shows.  You may know their parents, your children may have gone to school with them or you may have just heard of their efforts. 

I believe they have already raised close to $20,000.  We are organizing an event this Thursday evening at Midtown Bar and Grill, beginning at 7:30.  This event is to help Anthony and Rob and to give them a sendoff from their family, friends and neighbors in Nutley. 

We ask only that each attendee bring a gift/swipe card, in any denomination (VISA, AM EX, Target, Dunkin Donuts -- places that they will find along the way as they cross the county).  They will be able to use the cards to purchase food, new walking shoes, and supplies for themselves.   Lou Ritacco has generously offered to put out a light buffet for all attendees.  Drinks and alcohol are not included and are the responsibility of the individual guest.  If you are available, please come out and support them.  

This is an amazing effort and I know we all wish them the best.   If you need any additional information you can contact my office or Rob and Anthony directly through their website:  http://coasttocoastforacure.com/

Please feel free to forward this to your friends and colleagues or anyone you know who may know Anthony and Rob or the Greco and Bonora families.
